so I think something has gonr very wrong
@quarky The real question is.. who's archiving the Internet Archive?
(Seems to be up here, temporary/routing?)
@digitalfox yeah, it's back up already - using it to read http://web.archive.org/web/20190413022338/https://idlewords.com/talks/website_obesity.htm (v. good!)
I remember seeing something about a mirroring effort a while ago, tho I'm pretty sure they were doing the archive.org content instead of the wayback machine stuff
@quarky I remember reading that and didn't know the site went down... I'm glad there's an archive copy. And agreed, very good!
Noted on the mirroring effort. I hope more continue, for it'd be awful to lose what's on the archive if disaster struck.
@digitalfox not 100% of if the site's up, may just be my routing hiccup.
I love IA, but it definitely seems to be a single point of failure for a *lot* of digital archival. They've got loads of stuff though (some of it kinda crap) so I do wonder how feasible mirroring is for enthusiasts w/o datacenters
